SASSARI. The mood, first of all. Beyond the sincere encouragement from the fans, both within the team and in the environment surrounding Dinamo, there seems to be a sort of creeping discouragement. Like a stomach ache which, however, appears exaggerated, considering that we are only at the end of October and that, due to the way the team has been built, it is really early to draw conclusions. Also out of respect for Demis Cavina, whom the most critics already see as a scapegoat.
However, there are problems, and they are not few: in a roster in which, according to the ideas of management and staff, at least 4-5 elements could carry the ball, the play holder (Clemmons) does not dictate the pace in the right way and in this phase the “Less bungler” is certainly Gentile, who is also not play. The connection with the longs goes to alternating current and the game does not always manage to ride the good moments of the various Mekowulu and Bendizius. In general, the airy and fluid game proposed in the preseason, in the last few weeks has only been seen in flashes and more and more rarely.
The question of leadership remains unresolved at the moment. David Logan has always been the man who solves problems in life, but at 38 he can’t be asked to take everyone on his shoulders every time. Ditto for Eimantas Bendzius. The problem is that when the two biancoblù snipers do not see the basket, it is often trouble for everyone and the role of leader goes far beyond the mere haul of points scored. From this point of view, body language also has its importance.
On the other side of the pitch, things aren’t going too badly, but the defensive amnesia hasn’t been canceled. They range from the communication problems typical of the beginning of the season, to the real mental flaws of the individuals: Burnell, who is also an energy generator, is one of the main suspects and his general involution compared to last season is quite evident.
All topics marked in red on the coach’s notebook, who is constantly asked to motivate individuals and continue to work to try to cement the team spirit. If it is true that the true value of his team is still to be discovered, the other certainty is that most of the current problems are mainly related to mental stability. (a.si.)
